With school back in session, it’s time to have a little fun with breakfast. My kids love cereal but have fallen head over heels for this No Bake Frosted Flakes Peanut Butter Cereal Bars Recipe, so I had to share it with you.
I love spending time with my children, but now that school is back in session we’re spending less time doing cool, fun stuff and more time doing homework and preparing for school the following day. Which I know, it’s important, but BLAH!
I want to spend as much time with my children as possible, so I get as creative as possible with our time together. Of course, this means we spend time cooking together almost every night.
My kids are still too young to help too much with dinner, so we try to make breakfast, lunch, and even after school snacks together in the evenings after homework is finished. It’s a great reward for the girls, and I admit I love it too, it’s a win-win situation for us all. Plus, we come up with some pretty yummy recipes like this No Bake Frosted Flakes Peanut Butter Cereal Bars Recipe that my kids are head over heels in love with. It not only has their favorite cereal, Frosted Flakes but peanut butter too. Does it get any better than that? lol.
- 4-5 Cups Frosted Flakes Cereal
- 1 Cup All Natural Gluten-Free Sugar
- 1 Cup Corn Syrup or honey
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
- 1 Cup Peanut Butter
- 1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1.) Place Frosted Flakes cereal into a large bowl and set aside.
3.) Allow sugar mixture to boil for about 1 minute, all sugar should be good and dissolved. You’ll want to be sure to stir continuously to avoid burning sugar mixture.
4.) Remove combined sugar mixture from heat, add peanut butter and vanilla while it is still hot. Stir in peanut butter until it’s melted, and you have a thick peanut buttery mixture.
5.) Pour peanut butter mixture over Frosted Flakes cereal and turn/mix until cereal is completely covered.
6.) Spread into a large 9×13 pan or I used a large Tupperware container and packed down using a spatula. If you use Tupperware, you’ll want to be sure mixture is cooled enough.
7.) Allow to cool for about 2 hours or until firm.
My kids are getting pretty good at smashing the cereal into the container and Vayda generally helps me drizzle the chocolate. I think it’s safe to say we are both getting a little better, lol. You should have seen our last batch.
